    "Men ought either to be well treated or crushed, because they can avenge themselves of lighter injuries, of more serious ones they cannot; therefore the injury that is to be done to a man ought to be of such a kind that one does not stand in fear of revenge." (Niccolo Machiavelli, The Prince) Or, in modern lingo, "If you come at the king, you best not miss."

    I'm not sure what they were so intently focused on. Both the marksman and the spotter appear to be looking in the same direction, which would make sense if they were already ID'ing a potential target. The whole point of having a spotter working alongside the marksman is to expand your coverage when looking for potential threats. If they're both looking at the same thing, that's tunnel-vision. Again, it would make sense if they were preparing to fire, but if they're just trying to stay alert "360-degrees", they failed miserably at that. Also, the spotter has his rifle ready. I assume the SS has binoculars (or at least, some sort of magnification device that offers more field-of-view than a scope), which would make more sense for the spotter to use while scanning, unless—again—they were already preparing to take a shot. Although, I do agree that they both look caught-off-guard by the first shots.

    Tried to analyze the footage and it seems like the people hit were in the top left of the stands (stage-right). Which would mean those follow up shots would have to have been some wild fliers. I wonder if he realized he botched the initial shot and decided to just do random damage. Yeah found this video, those last shots were not aimed at anyone in particular, I'm certain of it. (need a YT account to view, apparently)

    The LP has comedy value, to be sure. We have seen the enemy, and don't know if it's the CIA or if it's our own autistic asses. But I think the conversation was about, or more about, small-l libertarianism as a philosophy. And on that score, I think the old adage that it's always darkest before the dawn has merit, because excess tends to cause a backlash. They're trying to get us to go full totalitarian because of the problems they created. That's why they have reacted so strongly to Ron Paul and ourselves, and have worked so hard at usurping the Tea Party and other things. All we can do is keep broadcasting the fact that the government caused all those problems, usually deliberately, and see if that allows us to play one "side" off against the other. We have a real chance to do that, if we can avoid getting caught up in their artificial divide, and remember that the lesser evil is still more evil than ever.

    I'm thinking (for what my opinion is worth) that you're better informed than ~95% of the population. The tricky part these days is figuring out what all that information adds up to. Toward. Look at the twixt in Brian's post just above yours.

    Like that's still optional at this point. He guaranteed the currency will crash in the next four years during his first term, and that destructive policy hasn't changed. That aspect of the economy is beyond anyone's control now, I think.

    Oh no, it's not that, it's just that some of you guys are completely incapable of weighing new evidence and formulating fresh opinions based on relevant knowledge at hand. In other words, you act just like liberals. If I wanted to argue converse with liberals, I wouldn't be on RPF. So off you go as well.

    Not for me. I'm far more likely to contribute to a maintenance man working in the private sector than any government employee. Anyone on the government teat who hasn't put something aside is a brat. Sometimes you do make me wonder who you think you're talking to when you come here.

    Meh. It's not like it's even slightly unusual. I haven't seen ex-President Trump referred to as "unemployed reality show host", or Jimmy Carter as "retired peanut farmer". It's also completely understandable, especially in an obit. And there's reason for it. When people are trying to put a face to a name, "one time variety show host Carol Burnett" tends to work better than "occasional guest on Password Carol Burnett". You're grilling a nothing burger this time.

    Note the verb used: "was". Ex-fire chief. I've seen that noted elsewhere, probably in the Butler Eagle. Not that it matters in a small enough town to have a volunteer fire department. My grandpop was assistant fire chief, but his day job was his bakery. Even had a siren on his bread wagon. If you're really interested, CaptUSA and he had several mutual real life friends. Check with him. Yeah. That.

    But it does matter, if the locals had it covered but were ordered to LIHOP. And people call all manner of law enforcement "police", though it's equally true that any number of agencies put "POLICE" on the backs of their uniforms, too.

    The counter-snipers clearly had "POLICE" on their backs, which doesn't sound like the SS.

    I just started looking at the Constitution Party platform since you recommended it awhile back. There are some good things in it, but there are also some concessions to statism that I think are dangerous despite the fact that I'm moving away from strict anarcho-capitalist libertarianism. They support regulation of "obscenity", which isn't really defined, they support some drug restrictions, and they are careful to show their respect for agents of our currently illegitimate state (veterans), as well as condemning attempts to cut their benefits despite the fact that they are paid out of our pockets and for participating in unjust wars for an unjust system.

    The Constitution Party isn't all bad, and I might support some of their candidates, but I don't think there is any party I can support on principle (LP is pro-choice so not an option) I respect strict theonomy even though I'm not sure I agree with it yet. I don't think anybody believes what I'm starting to believe these days.

    OK, so my question is, with relations to Galatians, how is it that you can call Roman Catholics on this board "brothers" even though they add works to the gospel just like the Judaizers did? How is adding baptism as a requirement in order to be saved any different than adding circumcision as a requirement?

    Out of curiosity, how do you interpret Galatians 1:8-9 and 2 John 9-11?
